LOS ANGELES — He�s about as hot as a man can get, but this week actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers may have been cooling himself off with a little too much lager as he was arrested at the Dublin Airport for public drunkenness and breach of the peace. The 30-year-old actor was in Ireland to promote his new film August Rush.

Born in Ireland, Rhys Meyers had dropped out of school and was discovered by a talent scout while playing billiards in a local pool hall.
Rhys Meyers rose to fame after his Golden Globe winning performance in the CBS mini series Elvis playing the king himself. As the sexually ambiguous rocker in Velvet Goldmine, Rhys Meyers again captured audiences with his stunning good looks and his vocal prowess.
Earlier this year, the actor twice checked into a rehab facility seeking treatment for alcohol abuse, which he says, was brought on by his jet set schedule.
This weekend, after a planned appearance on the Dublin talk show Tubridy Tonight, Rhys Meyers headed to the airport where he was arrested after reported abusive behavior at the ticket counter on a his way to London.
An eyewitness told the Associated Press �after being told he couldn't fly, he flew into a temper and started screaming at this woman. She seemed to be very upset by the whole ordeal."
The actor was released on cash bail and is scheduled to appear in court later next month.
August Rush, which co-stars Keri Russell and Robin Williams is expected to hit theatres in the US in late November. – Gay Link Content
